The French Dip isn't from France; it was invented in L.A.

Turkeys, of course, are not from Turkey, but Europeans confused them with another bird...which also wasn't from Turkey, but had been imported to Europe through there.

The Yugo...well, OK, it was made in Yugoslavia, but it was a clone of an obsolete Fiat design.
